Create two files:

test.php3 contains:

$max = 511;
for ($t = 1 ; $t <= $max ; $t++) print "A";


caller.php3 contains:

$infile = fopen("","r");
while (!feof($infile)) $response .= fgets($infile,255);

print $response;


Run it as is and you get a line of A's. If you increase $max, the call hangs.
